SUMMIT, NJ - An expanded employee parking landscape, which will see the bagging of meters on Summit Avenue between Parmley Place and Whittredge Road, and the installation of pay kiosks at five locations highlight structural changes to the Hilltop City's parking plan made by the City of Summit Parking Services Agency.

Effective August 18, green bags will cover the meter locations along Summit Avenue, with parking there available to employees with a digital permit available to be pre-paid via the online permitting system, or those employees who make daily payments through Parkmobile zone 1840.

On-street payment kiosks have been installed on Broad Street, Cedar Street, Maple Street, Elm Street and Summit Avenue. The single-space street meters on these streets will be covered with instructions to “pay at kiosk” until the street meters are eventually removed.  At the payment kiosk, customers will be prompted to enter a vehicle license plate number and to make a payment with exact change or by credit card. Payments can also be made with Parkmobile. Parking Services staff will be available to assist users at each location.

Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
